Women's experience of nursing in ovarian cancer : A literature study (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Ovarian cancer is the second most common female form of cancer and is considered to be the most aggressive form of gynecological cancer with the highest mortality. This is due to the difficulties in identifying the disease at an early stageWomen who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer face anxiety, feel great uncertainty for the future, fear of relapse and death. They also feel that family relationshipsand other contacts deteriorate, leading to social isolation.

Objective: The purpose was to elucidate women's experiences of nursing in ovarian cancer.

Method: A literature study with a qualitative approach that is based on ten qualitative articles and an article with a mixed method where the focus is on the qualitative analysis has been used to compile the result.

Result: The women's experience of nursing in ovarian cancer resulted in three main categories: communication, support and knowledge, and seven subcategories which are: the need to create a relationship with caregivers, the need for confirmation, the need for individually adapted information, the experience in lack of follow up, the experience in lack of coordination, the experience in lack of competence and understanding of the healthcare staff as well as the need for self-care training.

Conclusion: Byhighlighting women's experiences, nurses can create a better understanding of the nursing need that exists to address and manage it by applying patient-centered nursing.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Ovarialcancer är den näst vanligaste kvinnliga cancerformen och anses vara den aggressivaste formen av gynekologisk cancer med högst mortalitet. Detta beror påsvårigheterna att identifiera sjukdomen i ett tidigt skede. Kvinnor som diagnostiserats med ovarialcancer möter ångest, känner stor osäkerhet inför framtiden, har rädsla för återfall och dödsfall. De upplever även att familjerelationer, samt övriga kontakter försämras vilket leder till social isolering.

Syfte: Syftet var att belysa kvinnors upplevelser av omvårdnad vid ovarialcancer.

Metod: En litteraturstudie med kvalitativ ansats som baseras på tio kvalitativa artiklar samt en artikel med blandad metod där fokus läggs på den kvalitativa analysen har använts för att sammanställa resultatet.

Resultat: Kvinnornas upplevelse av omvårdnad vid ovarialcancer resulterade i tre huvudkategorier: kommunikation, stöd ochkunskapsamt sju subkategorier vilka är: behov av att skapa en relation till vårdgivaren, behovet av bekräftelse, behovet av individuellt anpassad information, upplevelsen av bristande uppföljning, upplevelsen av bristande samordning, upplevelsen av bristande kompetens och förståelse hos vårdpersonalensamt behovet av utbildning i egenvård.

Slutsats: Genom att lyfta fram kvinnornas upplevelser kan sjuksköterskor skapa bättre förståelse för det omvårdnadsbehovet som finns för att kunna bemöta och hantera det genom att tillämpa personcentrerad omvårdnad.
